Beautiful Submission 
(A standalone)

Publication Date: December 3, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Captive/Submission/Enemies-to-Lovers/Age Gap Romance

Author: Ivy Wild

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars4.5 stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

This is not a typical BDSM romance. This is a slow burn romance with a lot of psychological elements where love isn’t earned through paddles, but control.

Aubrey Knight is the daughter of a senator. She has grown up in a fake world and has never really known what it’s like to be herself. Is she a brat? Yes, she is pretty good at acting out, but when it’s the only way to gain attention in a world where she’s never known love, and it’s the only thing she knows.

Xavier Payne is a man all about control and order. When he barters a deal with the senator and Aubrey is the collateral. Xavier uses the time Aubrey is isolated in his home to fix the broken girl, but he never thought she’d turn the tables on him and crack his ice filled chest open with all of her fire.

While these two would seem like complete opposites; a bratty, spoiled girl vs. a polished, controlled man. The more time they spend together and melt each other walls, they find out they may be more alike than they ever would have guessed.

Fire vs. ice is the underlying theme throughout the entire story, but will fire melt the ice or will the ice put out the fire? These two are opposite and don’t give in easy, it’s a true battle to find any happiness, but neither have really experienced happiness in their lives to know it is possible and should be important.

This is a slow burn, so don’t get frustrated by the back and forth. In a true enemies to lovers that push and pull makes that slow burn bubble and boil until it steams up to the perfect temperature.

Synopsis:

Xavier:
My truth is control.
My truth is that good is rewarded
and that bad is punished.
Aubrey Knight thought she could disrupt my business
and get away with it.
But, she was sorely mistaken.
So, when her father lost the election
and came to me begging for money I struck a deal.
The little brat would serve as collateral until the loan was repaid.
She thinks she can test me.
How laughable.
She will submit to me,
and it will be a beautiful submission.

Aubrey:
I will never submit to him.

Beautiful Submission is a complete standalone romance with age-gap, enemies to lovers, captive and BDSM themes

Review – Secrets and Lies by Brooke Blaine and Ella Frank

59353203. sy475

Secrets and Lies 
(A standalone)

Publication Date: November 29, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Age-Gap/Forbidden/MM Romance

Author: Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Ryder and Ash are hot, forbidden and their chemistry is off the charts!!!

From the very beginning the story is fantastic. Secrets and Lies is page turning, electric chemistry with taboo themes, but every page radiates a red hot  energy that burns right off the page!

Ryder and Ash meet at an art workshop and instantly hit it off. There is that instant spark, but also an insight into the personalities of these two men. Ryder at his core is tenacious, tenacious, tenacious. I have a daughter who is just like him, no filter and knows exactly what he wants, of course I loved that he knew there was nothing that was going to stop him from getting what he wanted and that was Ash.

Ash was drawn to Ryder from the moment he stepped into the workshop. Ash hasn’t felt that kind of spark, probably ever in his life. As much as he tries to deny it, he just can’t help the pull to the charismatic Ryder.

Neither could have guessed what would have happened the next day when Ryder started at a new school and Ash was standing at the head of the classroom.

Yes, the story is forbidden and should contain a ton of angst and it does, but Ryder’s lack of filter adds levity to most of the situations. Underlying every moment is the delicious sort of angst between them more than anything. It’s the…will they or won’t they…perfect forbidden kind of reading. Secrets and Lies is a one sit read, I know, I couldn’t put it down once I started.

Synopsis:

I wasn’t supposed to want him. The bronzed god lying by my pool in tight shorts that left little to the imagination. But I was only human, and with the temptation constantly within reach, it was only a matter of time before I could no longer resist.

It was wrong. I knew that.

He was my son’s best friend.

But even worse…I was his teacher.

Secrets & Lies is a standalone teacher-student MM romance from USA Today bestselling authors Brooke Blaine & Ella Frank

Review – First Kiss Before Frost by Jennifer Bernard

59522927. sy475

First Kiss Before Frost; Lost Harbor, Alaska #11 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: November 23, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Small Town/Contemporary Romance

Author: Jennifer Bernard

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Super cute, funny, and full of small town charm with a touch of mystery.

Lulu Spencer-Bennington is super quirky and totally owns her personality and oddities. It’s her adorable personality that Tristan Del Ray finds so charming when he finds Lulu stowed away on his ship. This couple had me laughing from the very beginning and the story was delightful from beginning to end.

Lulu escaped from an anchored cruise ship birthed in Lost Harbor and hid on Tristan’s ship for protection. Lulu’s quirky personality made Tristan laugh, something he hadn’t done in quite some time, which is one reason he felt protective of her, but that was just one reason in a very long list regarding Lulu.

Tristan was barely back to fishing after having brain surgery and he still was trying to get his footing on his life. Tristan is well liked and has always been personable, but after his surgery he feels…sometimes not like himself. Lulu makes him laugh and she actually needs his help and even though she may be a stranger he feels compelled to help her and purposeful for the first time since his injury.

First Kiss Before Frost is so much more than just two people falling in love, it’s a story about trusting yourself and finding your place even if you think you may be a little lost. Lulu and Tristan share laughter and trust in this adventure through Lust…I mean Lost Harbor and I was laughing through a lot of tears right along with them. It’s the perfect addition to one of my favorite small town series.

Synopsis:

A sexy standalone in the fan-favorite Lost Harbor, Alaska series

After a heartbreaking loss, Lulu Spencer-Bennington is on a mission to live her life to the fullest. Dancing her way around the world on a cruise ship is a great start. Hiding in a small Alaska town, staying off a criminal’s radar, probably wasn’t what her beloved mum had in mind. Fortunately, she’s stumbled across a sexy fisherman willing to help. So maybe he doesn’t quite know what he’s in for…but Lulu’s hoping to be out of town before he finds out.

Tristan Del Rey has always been a natural leader—but a recent fishing accident has sent his confidence reeling. He’s no hero, no matter what his fellow Lost Harbor fishermen think. Even so, he can’t turn away the funny, feisty dancer he finds on his boat. He’s determined to protect her no matter what it costs him. As for anything more personal, the best he can offer is some temporary fun. That doesn’t stop the luscious, long-legged Lulu from high-kicking him right in the heart.

Between a dangerous enemy, family drama and the fast-approaching winter, Tristan and Lulu may find their hearts’ desires where they least expect it…starting with a first kiss before frost.

Wanting You Close

Archer & Everleigh duet, #2

Wanting You Close is now available on all retailers!

I never imagined my new roommate would be the man I’d actually fall for. Though I don’t get close to the people I sleep with, he’s been my exception. Archer acts emotionally unavailable while he focuses on starting over, but our connection is too strong to ignore.
He’s rugged on the outside and sweet on the inside—the opposite of my usual type. I see the way his eyes gaze up and down my body, making it harder to keep my feelings in check. Knocking down his walls is no easy task, especially with my brother interfering, but I refuse to give up.
When lines are crossed and emotions bubble over, trouble finds us. We both have pasts that have leaked into our present—now I’m scared it’ll destroy the one secret we’ve been keeping

Blog Tour – Head Over Hooves by Erin Nicholas

Head Over Hooves, a small town, holiday fling rom com from New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas is available today!

You know in movies where the big city girl lands in a small town for the holidays and falls for the hunky guy who saves Christmas?

This isn’t that story.

But this guy does look fantastic in flannel. And out of flannel…

Finding true love with his one-and-only soul mate? Drew Ryan’s given up on that.

But a hot holiday fling in Louisiana, far from his responsibilities and good guy image back home, is now on the top of his list for Santa.

So when he’s knocked on his ass—literally—by a Christmas elf who’s stealing a sleigh full of gifts and using his reindeer to commit the crime, he definitely doesn’t expect to fall head over heels.

This holiday couldn’t get any worse for Rory Robins.

First, her hair wasn’t supposed to turn green. It’s not even Christmas green.

And the elf costume wasn’t supposed to be two sizes too small.

And her con-man father wasn’t supposed to show up and go all real-life-Grinch on her beloved new hometown.

And she definitely wasn’t supposed to run into anyone while trying to fix the problem. Especially not the hunky guy who already seems too good to be true.

But he does have a way of making her “cocoa” even hotter and a whole lot sweeter…

Still, he lives in Iowa. The only good thing her father ever gave her was a healthy distrust of men who are never around. She’s not doing a long-distance thing.

This little fling is only going to last as long as the temporary color of her hair.

Only nothing seems to be fading. And she might be asking Santa for just one more thing…

EXCERPT

“I’m not tired,” I say in a breathy tone.
“What is it you want to do then, Rowan?” I swallow hard as he looks me in the eye. There’s something dark dancing in his, and I want it. I want to reach out and touch it. There’s a strange feeling in my chest when he takes a step closer to me and then another. Our chests are nearly touching at this point, and a shiver runs through my body.
“You have nothing to say?” he asks, keeping his eyes trained on mine.
“You. I want to do you.” The alcohol has loosened my tongue, and I blurt the words out. The thoughts I’ve had of him for years now. Mather smirks at me before shaking his head.
“You couldn’t handle me.”
“Try me,” I answer. Mather’s nostrils flare, and his eyes flash with fire before he pulls his hands away from me. He takes a small step back and looks me up and down, causing bumps to form on my skin.
“Kneel,” he demands. I snicker, thinking it’s a joke. He raises an eyebrow and challenges me.
“You’re kidding?”
“Do I look like I’m kidding?” his tone hard. My insides tremble as I think about doing it. I almost drop to my knees for him, but something stops me. I don’t know if it’s all the alcohol I’ve consumed tonight, but I stand my ground.
“Just like I said, you couldn’t handle me. Go to bed, Rowan.”
“I’m not ready for bed,” I tell him. He moves to walk away, and this time I fall to my knees. Shouldn’t this be degrading? Shouldn’t it feel all wrong? For some reason, it doesn’t, and I stay, on my knees, gazing up at him.
Mather turns back, seeing me on the floor at his mercy before he steps back into my space. His hand comes to cup my cheek and slowly feathers his fingers over my flesh. His thumb comes to my lip, gently stroking over the bottom one.
“Open your mouth,” he says, keeping his eyes on me the whole time. Slowly I part my lips for him, and he slides his thumb inside. I close my lips around it and twirl my tongue over the tip. He watches me, waiting. I suck his thumb, imagining it’s his cock. I continue to suck until I can feel heat pool between my thighs.

Hudson
Since I lost my wife, my life has consisted of being a single dad to two crazy kids and playing professional football, leaving me with no room for anything or anyone else.
Until the moment I met Sawyer.
Something about her feels right, and I know it’s more than just chemistry. She’s a game changer. My second chance at love.
I want all of her days, her nights, and everything in between. But our time together is limited, and come Saturday, she’s going to leave, taking my heart right along with her.
Sawyer
I wasn’t looking for love, but that didn’t stop it from finding me. All it took was six days to fall head over heels for a complete stranger and his adorable children.
Nothing has ever felt so right. But as a single mom, it’s not just about what I want. We live over a thousand miles apart, and I know all too well that long-distance love always ends in heartache.
Hudson’s everything I’ve ever wanted in a man, and I know it would be easy to create a life with him and our kids. Which is why it’s going to be so hard to say goodbye.

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Intrigue/Age Gap/Contemporary Romance

Author: Skye Warren

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

The final book in the Rochester trilogy and it’s full of intrigue and passion.

Emily Rochester is back from the dead and what a tangled web she weaves. Is Emily there for the right reasons? While she says wants Jane’s help in getting her daughter, Paige, is she really there to complete her family by also getting Beau?

Jane has grown up with a life of disappointment. She won’t let Paige down in her time of need, but she also realizes that giving up Beau might be what everyone needs. Jane has grown so strong since the beginning of the trilogy. While she recognizes that she’s not the same girl, she’s also not ready to come between Paige and the best outcome for her future.

Who will Beau choose, his long lost, who he thought was dead love or the new girl who has swooped in and recently stolen his heart? Also….where has Emily been and why?

This trilogy needs to be read in order to make the most sense so please start from the beginning.

Synopsis:

The secrets haunting Beau Rochester come alive.

He doesn’t deserve happiness, but he holds it in his hands. A woman he loves. A child. The past threatens to rip them away. He risks losing them forever.

Jane Mendoza is determined to protect the people she loves from every threat–the mysterious arsonist, the corrupt police force. The darkest danger comes from a place she never expects.

She risks more than her newfound family. She risks her life.

Review:

A perfect blend of sweet and sassy mixed with good ol’ down and dirty. Wanting You Close was the perfect ending to the overall Lawton Ridge series while still allowing Archer and Everleigh time to have their moment in the spotlight.

From the very beginning Archer and Everleigh’s chemistry was off the charts making their love firey and bold. They’ve completed one another on every level which made them a total joy to read.

Even though both of these characters had a past that was creeping in and trying to steal their happiness, neither of them allowed it to snuff out their joy. I loved that they continued to live in the moment and took charge of their surroundings instead of cowering in fear.

Everleigh is the absolute best and I love her take charge attitude in all situations. Because of her personality she not only allowed for free dialogue, which in turn came open communication (whether it’s with her employees, friends, or in her love life) her frank personality in or out of the bedroom allows for a very healthy relationship. She is extremely likable and Everleigh is by far one of my favorite all time book heroines.

If I already didn’t want to move down to Lawton Ridge for Everleigh’s friendship, I’d want to move there for all the eye candy. Archer is not only super sweet and loving, but yummy to gawk at too. All these southern men are lucky in love and this series couldn’t have wrapped up any better.

This is the second half of a book duet and shouldn’t be read as a standalone. It picks up right after the first part. While each book duet in the series does stand on its own, I’d also say that as a reader and fan of the series it is more enjoyable to read them all together and in order since the characters do live in a small town and are all connected. That is, however, my personal opinion.

Synopsis:

Book 2 in the Archer & Everleigh duet
The final conclusion to the Archer & Everleigh duet and final book in the Lawton Ridge duet series!

Archer and Everleigh’s happily ever after is so close, they can taste it, but their pasts may be what comes between them. How will they overcome it?
I never imagined my new roommate would be the man I’d actually fall for. Though I don’t get close to the people I sleep with, he’s been my exception. Archer acts emotionally unavailable while he focuses on starting over, but our connection is too strong to ignore.

He’s rugged on the outside and sweet on the inside—the opposite of my usual type. I see the way his eyes gaze up and down my body, making it harder to keep my feelings in check. Knocking down his walls is no easy task, especially with my brother interfering, but I refuse to give up.

When lines are crossed and emotions bubble over, trouble finds us. We both have pasts that have leaked into our present—now I’m scared it’ll destroy the one secret we’ve been keeping.

WANTING YOU CLOSE is book 2 in the Archer & Everleigh duet and must be read in order.

Block 9th

These books are all read best in order, but you can read the duets as stand-alones too.
Tyler & Gemma duet
a second chance, best friend’s brother romance
Noah & Katie duet
a single mom, childhood friends to lovers romance
Archer & Everleigh duet
an opposites attract, brother’s best friend,
roommates to lovers romance
…with all the small town feels!

Blog Tour- Jingle Bell Beard by Julie Kriss

Jingle Bell Beard by Julie Kriss is now live!

  

Jingle Bell Beard by Julie Kriss:

My to do list:
Revive my crashed PR career.
Turn around the Kringle family business by Christmas.
Convince my ex-boyfriend, NHL legend Matt “the Mountain” Kringle, to help me, even though I broke his heart when we were seventeen.
Easy, right?

Matt is huge, he’s hot, and he’s the grumpiest player in the league. I’ll have to brave his bad attitude and his sexy beard if I want him to help bail out the family business and put my career back on track. I’ll also have to try to forget – again – what an amazing kisser he is.

None of it is going to be easy. Not when Matt’s arrival in town leads to the Airport Incident and the Candy Cane Scandal – talk about embarrassing. But as Matt and I navigate disaster after disaster together, I’ll have to get over the fact that I never got over him. And that love with Matt is a game I just might want to play.

Review – Dark Reign by Amelia Wilde

58565601. sy475

Dark Reign; The Collector #1 
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: November 9, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Suspense/Contemporary Romance

Author: Amelia Wilde

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A suspenseful, slow burn with a bubbling, dark Morelli undertone.

I love the rich texture Amelia give her books and reading this series is like eating a gourmet meal. Tuck your napkin in your shirt and get ready to gorge on Daphne and Emerson.

This book, perhaps because Daphne is different than her siblings, running on the side of happy and innocent, would be different if you didn’t know better, but she is also a Morelli at heart. Her artwork spills out all of the darkness she tries to hide inside and Emerson LeBlanc is drawn to her the moment he meets her. That darkness Daphne leaves on the canvas, Emerson recognizes it and he desires it. However, he not only wants to collect her art, but the woman herself.

Emerson is elusive and dark and very stalkerish, especially when it comes to Daphne. He fits right in with the Constantines and Morellis in this elite world of billionaire men. He knows what he wants, but he is also patient and like a lion stalking his prey, he waits to make his move. Every move on the chess board only intrigues Daphne more. Even her brothers won’t be able to lock her up when The Collector comes to collect her.

Dark Reign ends on a cliffhanger and I can hardly wait to return to find out how their story ends.

Synopsis:

Wealthy. Reclusive. Dangerous. Emerson LeBlanc doesn’t enter society much. He only ventures out in pursuit of new art for his collection. It starts with a haunting painting. Then he meets the artist…

Innocent Daphne Morelli is more exquisite than anything he’s ever seen. He becomes obsessed with her. It doesn’t matter that she’s a living, breathing person with her own hopes and dreams.

Review – Misplaced Mistletoe by Isabel Jolie

59108520. sy475

Misplaced Mistletoe 
(A standalone novella)

Publication Date: November 8, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Novella/Second Chance/Holiday Romance

Author: Isabel Jolie

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Reading this book was like watching an adorable holiday movie, full of charm with all the holiday mistletoe moments.

Nora and Ashton’s story moved back and forth between past and present from the first time they met at a holiday party to the present when they reconnect.

While their meet-cute is a sort of a drunken hookup where they first kissed under the mistletoe, there was a connection that neither one of them could deny. However, Nora was fresh in New York City and just beginning her job. She really didn’t have time to commit to a long term relationship, but neither did Ashton. He was attending med school and in deep in his surgical residency, but he didn’t exactly end their brief time together in the best way and now it’s eight years later and Nora is once again standing under the mistletoe.

Nora is steadfast in trying to keep Ashton in her past. She doesn’t want to repeat the mistakes she’s made before by letting Ashton in, but he’s relentless in his pursuit of her this time around. Knocking down her walls and forcing his way past of every obstacle she throws up. This time he’s ready for a relationship and he doesn’t want to lose her again, not for another eight years.

A great novella just in time for the holiday season.

Synopsis:

One secret kiss under the mistletoe can never lead to happily ever after…right?

Once upon a time, Nora shared the hottest kiss ever—followed by an equally steamy Christmas—with her boss’s super-sexy brother. Then he ghosted her. That was eight years ago. Now, she’s completely over it. And when he shows up at the annual holiday party, she will not let herself repeat past mistakes. This time, she’ll stay far away from the mistletoe…

Ashton doesn’t lose control. Ever. Well, except for that one time. His focus has always been on completing his residency and fellowship programs. But seeing the gorgeous redhead again makes him think that losing a little control, just once more, might be just what the doctor ordered…

Will the magic of the season—with an assist from a certain mischievous matchmaker—convince Nora and Ashton to take a second chance on love? It might just take a Christmas miracle…

Review – Empire of Desire by Rina Kent

58510952. sy475

Empire of Desire; Empire #1 
(An interconnected standalone)

Publication Date: November 4, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Marriage of Convenience/Age-Gap/Workplace/Forbidden Romance

Author: Rina Kent

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

This may not be Kent’s normal dark romance, but it’s a well written, outstanding story that contains a lot of forbidden tropes.

Nate Weaver, my favorite lawyer, is here and everything I was hoping for. Nate  may not be the kind of man to openly show that he cares, just ask his nephew, but he is a ninja carer. What does that mean? He basically sneaks in undercover and without you knowing he takes of everything in your life and you never even have a chance to thank him for it. Especially don’t thank him, it makes him uncomfortable. I love how unattached he seems, it’s delightful.

Nate’s circle is small, he doesn’t like emotions, but he’s also really amazing. Like, will drive a person crazy kind of amazing, but once he’s under your skin he’s impossible to to kick out. Ask Gwen who’s been trying for years.

Gwendolyn Shaw is the daughter of Nate’s best friend, Kingston. A daughter that King had during his last year in high school and Nate has been there every step of the way. Nate never once saw Gwendolyn as anything other than King’s daughter, until she kissed him on her eighteenth birthday. That is when everything changed.

Gwen has been in love with Nate since she understood what that meant, outside of familial love. She has had a singular focus when it came to loving Nate, her favorite flavor in the world, which is vanilla, and loving her dad, which should be hard considering Nate is her dad’s best friend, but the heart wants what the heart wants.

Gwen never thought she’d get a chance with Nathaniel, considering he didn’t give her the time of day, but when everything in her life careens out of control, he’s there taking charge and suddenly her husband.

While this isn’t a dark romance, it also isn’t a happy-go-lucky romance either. It’s forbidden and sinful, while also being emotional (and remember Nate doesn’t like those). Rina really captures everything that is important in an age-gap romance that makes that soul deep connection burn and thrive, but also makes you cheer for the HEA. It’s delicious.

 He’s my dad’s best friend, my new boss, and my forbidden fantasy. 

Synopsis:

My forbidden husband.

I kissed my father’s best friend and it kind of didn’t go well.
Not only because he’s eighteen years older than me—but he also didn’t like it.
Not one bit.
In my defense, I didn’t mean to fall for him. It just happened.
Nathaniel Weaver is the most attractive man I’ve ever seen with enough charisma to blind the sun.
He’s bigger than the world, owns half of it and conquered the other half.
He was forbidden.
Wrong.
So I totally got over him. Or so I told myself.
Until we’re forced to get married.
Now I’m trapped.
But maybe he’s trapped too.
Because we’re both reaching for that forbidden fruit dangling between us.

Empire of Desire is a complete STANDALONE. No book should be read prior to this.
Note: This is NOT a dark romance.

EMPIRE OF DESIRE IS A COMPLETE STANDALONE!
Forbidden age gap, father’s best friend, marriage of convenience romance.

Let’s see…where to begin…

I’m inching up on the BIG 4-0. The gray hairs are doubling what seems like daily, and the wrinkles and laugh lines are more pronounced than ever.

I have an amazing husband (Married just over 15 years.)

We have two boys we’re doing our best to raise as respectful gentleman.

I have a master’s degree in criminal justice which I used to work as a juvenile probation office until deciding to write full-time in June of 2019. So that means there’s usually always some criminal/law element to my novels.

If I’m not writing; I’m reading.

My favorite genres recently are bully/reverse harem and enemies to lovers. Maybe I’m reliving my traumatic teen years through the girls who actually end up with the boys. (Not that I would change my history since it’s gotten me exactly where I need to be!)

I love coffee. I miss carbs. Music is LIFE. I try not to be too serious.

The Grump Who Stole Christmas by S Doyle: Kristen left her high-powered career in New York, and she’d do just fine running the family Christmas tree farm – if it wasn’t for a pesky man with a beard, an axe, a lot of flannel, and an attitude.

Very Merry Married by M O’Keefe: Ethan doesn’t remember getting married to a Vegas showgirl. But when she walks into the family inn with her nonstop curves and divorce papers, he remembers their wedding night. And now he doesn’t want to let her go.

Jingle Bell Beard by Julie Kriss: Matt is the grumpiest NHL player in the league, and nothing can make him come home – except the girl who broke up with him in high school, who needs him to beef up her PR campaign. Maybe he needs her to warm up his cold heart.

Review – Love, Artifacts, and You by Sarah Ready

59022726. sx318

Love, Artifacts, and You; Soul Mates in Romeo #4 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: October 26, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Second Chance/Intrigue/Contemporary Romance

Author: Sarah Ready

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Oh, Lord, the town of love is hot, hot, HOT!!

In this second chance romance, Sarah Ready brings the steam, intense plot, and soul deep love to Romeo, NY and it’s her hottest book yet.

Emma and Andrew have known each other since childhood and they share the same passion when it comes to finding the lost treasures of the world. They fell in love when they were teenagers, but were torn apart for a decade. When Emma lands in Romeo, NY after losing everything, she is told she will find not only her soulmate but the lost treasure of Romeo, Emma finally has hope for the first time in ten years.

Andrew and Emma may have spent the last decade apart, but everytime they are together they have passion and their deep, lifelong love leaps off the page. No matter what plans or thoughts they may have had before, fly out of the window when they see one another. It’s like you can literally see their souls reaching out to one another, wrapping up, and twineing around each other so they never leave each others side. It’s really beautiful and intense.

I loved this passionate story that was a little Indiana Jones and all about love.

Synopsis:

A love that spans from the jungles of Central America to the hidden caves of Romeo, New York…

Infamous treasure hunter Emma Castleton desperately wants to find the Lost Treasure of Romeo. Emma’s been labeled a fraud and she’s determined to fix her reputation.

She’s also been promised that when she finds Romeo’s Lost Treasure, she’ll finally find her soul mate. But Emma knows that’s a lie. Her true love died ten years ago on a devastating treasure hunt in Central America.

Former street kid Andrew Santiago loved Emma with all his heart. That is, until she shattered his life, betrayed his trust, and left him for dead. Now Andrew’s back, wealthy and powerful, and determined to take his revenge on the woman who broke his heart.

But as Andrew and Emma hunt for Romeo’s Lost Treasure they uncover secrets of the past, buried artifacts, and ever-present danger. Soon, they’re confronted with a choice, what is the greater treasure – true love or revenge?

Love, Artifacts, and You is Book 4 in the Soul Mates in Romeo Romance Series by Sarah Ready.

What’s a girl to do when her celebrity crush needs her to be his fake girlfriend?

Sealed With a Kiss, an all-new romantic comedy filled with heated chemistry from New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas is available now!

Keep her damned feelings to herself, of course.
Child TV star turned adult wallflower Naomi LeClaire has vowed never to return to the spotlight.
But when she’s stuck in a storm with Donovan Foster, the hot, charming, wild-life rescuing internet sensation, and she finally gives in and kisses him…and a few articles of clothing end up on the floor…suddenly her simple, quiet life is tossed upside down.

Especially after the paparazzi catches a heat-of-the-moment kiss. Now everyone assumes she’s his girlfriend and, when she realizes that’s the best way to keep Donovan out of trouble, Naomi agrees to play along. Even though it puts her center stage with her private life in very public view. Again.

They’re a whirlwind of opposites-attract chemistry the fans love, but they’ll surely blow over faster than a Gulf Coast hurricane. As long as they can keep straight what’s real and what’s just a once-in-a-lifetime fantasy.

Meet Sharon Michalove

I grew up in suburban Chicago. After spending most of my life in a medium-sized university town I moved back to Chicago in 2017 so I could go to more Blackhawks games and spend quality time at Eataly. Besides watching hockey, travel is my passion. I love history, reading, cooking, writing, and various less elevated activities like eating pastry and sampling gins and single malts.

Review – Sleight of Hand by Marie James

56572329. sy475

Sleight of Hand; Blackbridge Security #7 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: October 26, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Contemporary Romance

Author: Marie James

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Hot, funny, and mixed with tension. BBS continues to amaze me with the mix of characters and great love stories.

This new couple sizzles chemistry, smoking hot fire, but between them neither of them have any experience in the relationship department, not that either of them are looking for anything beyond the sheets. However, the more time they spend together, the more the idea doesn’t lose appeal.

Gaige Ward and Leighton Redmond meet in a bar the night before Leighton is set to meet with Deacon Black for a job interview with Blackbridge Security. Neither Gaige nor Leighton know who the other person is, their interlude is purely for pleasure where they actually give each other false names too. A one night stand that shouldn’t have gone past that night, but the next day sheds a new light to a hot evening, with poor choices.

While Gaige and Leighton burn right off the pages, they both have problems with intimacy. Their back and forth, especially how Gaige initially treated Leighton was unexpected, but I loved the idea of how he originally handled his life and the growth he had throughout the story was excellent.

Leighton held back more throughout as the story went along, but she doesn’t believe in relationships, at all. Unlike Gaige who grew up with loving parents, Leighton grew up in a toxic environment and believes that all men aren’t able to commit. While she loves that Gaige is excellent at providing multiple O’s she doesn’t see beyond the bedroom for a future.

I love how each book in the Blackbridge world is different, but the entire team is brought together under one roof to work cohesively for one company. I never know what to expect when jumping into a BBS book and it truly makes reading this series exciting. I love returning, if for nothing else, to catch up with Wren and Puff Daddy, they make me giggle every single time.

Synopsis:

Gaige Ward, acquisition expert for Blackbridge Security, obtains things for the team.

As far as your mind can take you is how far he can go.

If it exists, he can get his hands on it.

If he can’t, he’ll find someone who can.

He never fails.

As with all things when growing in popularity, Blackbridge is also taking on scrutiny.

His boss, in an attempt to counter being called misogynistic and discriminatory against women, needs a female with the ability to handle the same tasks his guys can.

Leighton Redmond fits the bill perfectly.

Only, according to her she isn’t for sale, for employment or otherwise.

Gaige loves a challenge but has NEVER had to fight so hard to procure something for his boss.

Maybe next time he’ll think twice before having a one-night stand the day before a very important business meeting.

Savannah

A sexy, single dad and his teenage son weren’t a part of my white picket fence fairy tale, but if life has taught me anything, it’s that things don’t always work out according to plan.

Ben offers me no-strings-attached sex, but we could never be stringless. He has a son to think about, one who’s very much a part of my life.

No matter how much I want to accept his offer, taking our relationship to the next level would leave us tangled in knots.

Benjamin

After experiencing firsthand the devastation love can cause, I knew having a family wasn’t for me. Neither was being a single dad—but here we are, trying to make it work.

The last thing I need is a distraction, but then Savannah waltzes into my world,  stealing my treadmill at the gym—as well as my son’s heart.

We agreed to no strings. No complications or commitments. But I’m going back on my word because now that I know what it’s like to be with Savannah, there’s no way I’m ever letting her go.
